of don meredith you can the old monday night football broadcaster who said, welcome to the city that's mile high and so am i. i'm not high the way don was but high with excitement in anticipation for this debate tonight. we have been waiting, it seems, for months for this thing. let's set the stage before we get going. you know, sometimes i think the cliche cliches are true. this is one of them. we heard talk about how? a do-or-die for mitt romney n a lot of ways it really is. there are basically three possible outcomes, the way i see it tonight. someone that romney really does get some kind of a lift out of this it's a command performance, maybe some kind of slipup by obama. you think of john kerry in the first debate in 2004. maybe romney is able to revive his campaign tonight. the second possibility is, you know, something goes wrong for romney, he actually loses this debate. obviously that would be terrible for him now the third possibility, to be honest, probably the most likely one is nothing happens it is pace basically a draw, maybe 90 minutes of dull and boring television if

this thing. it's this dynamic we've seen a lot in las vegas or perhaps atlantic city when we get a champion and challenger. the challenger has nothing to lose and goes nuts and flings punches everywhere. what does he have to lose? i don't need to mix it up with you. i'm going it to win on points and layback. sometimes that strategy wins and sometimes it doesn't. >> it's always frustrating if you're a fan to watch it fully. >> it's bizarre. >> you don't want it. s.e., i understand you were checking out some of the coverage from our friends at current? >> yeah. the reaction to this was interesting across the spectrum, but the kids at current tv had a very hard time, very hard time explaining obama's loss. but uncle al had his own theory. take a look. >> obama arrived in denver at 2:00 p.m. today just a few hours before the debate started. romney did his debate prep in denver. when you go to 5,000 feet and you only have a few hours to adjust -- >> that's interesting. >> i don't know. maybe -- >> al, can i say the first time -- >> to me this is an important point. i drank two cups of coffee bef

in an elitist city like new york is hard to find here. so they couldn't get it for me. but i do have an amazing memory, i'm a packer fan, so going to lambeau, having a pabst blue ribbon in a can at curly's grill with a plate of cheese kurds was maybe one of the greatest days of my life. >> perhaps stereotypical of a northeastern liberal, i prefer a nice california merlot. i'm a little classier than some other cyclists here. >> clsyer. >> i opted for the more elite beverage. >> pure class over there. >> because i'm a great patriot, sam adams which is actually a republican beer apparently. >> you're close to the aisle there. >> but i don't believe it because the true patriots here. >> also, there are three people from massachusetts here and the one who is not from massachusetts takes the sam adams. >> weird. >> i'm going blue state, california. >> about as far from massachusetts as you can get. >> but it's americana. >> i want to throw in the ring hat tip to brian, i do like dos equis or dos equis. i like the commercials, the most interesting man. >> the oldest man at the club. that's what he is.
